SNC-Lavalin Constructing Lava Labs
SNC-Lavalin announced the construction of new facilities designed to accelerate its technological leadership capabilities. The Centers, called Lava Labs, will be opened in key locations globally and will enable SNC-Lavalin to bring its global expertise from its businesses to local clients and markets. Lava Labs are part of SNC-Lavalin's strategy to take a leadership role in disrupting the industry through connecting people, data and technology to deliver solutions and outcomes that address the planet's most complex problems. The Labs will enable the development and application of new and innovative ways of delivering end-to-end services for client projects. Working in collaboration with clients, partners and SNC-Lavalin's teams of experts, the Labs will harness and bring together the best talent across the industry and across the globe.
Lava Labs will be fitted out with state-of-the-art technology where clients can immerse themselves in the huge potential of data and technology, allowing them to visualize, collaborate and deliver their projects in new and innovative ways with greater certainty and speed, while driving better outcomes.
Lava Labs will also host events, training and discussions, bringing together the best of the industry and innovation ecosystems - both virtually and in person – to discuss, debate and share ideas on how SNC-Lavalin can help to address societal challenges such as climate change and population growth.
SNC-Lavalin has appointed Federico Puebla as Global Lead of Lava Labs. Federico joins SNC-Lavalin from Desjardins Group, North America's largest financial cooperative where he was the architect of the organization's first innovation lab, Desjardins Lab, the Startup in Residence incubator, and the largest open innovation competition in Canada, Coopérathon.
